The Antidote to Fear, Anxiety and Worry about Death

#overcoming fear
# worry
# anxiety
# death


"My heart is severely pained within me, And the terrors of death have fallen upon me." David in Psalm 55:4

 

"He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end." Ecclesiastes 3:11


The ways that people cope with the fear of dying:

1. Denial

2. Distraction

3. Delay

4. Depression


Jesus set.... "free those who were held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death." Hebrews 2:15


Jesus is the answer to our fear of death.

"Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also." John 14:1-3


"And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son." 1 John 5:11


"O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?" 1 Corinthians 15:55


"But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 15:57


"But as it is written: Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him." 1 Corinthians 2:9


Message to Christians: "Go for it!"

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6: 23


Message to others: "Don’t be stupid!"

Jesus has flung open the gates of Heaven for everyone who wants to enter through receiving His free gift of grace.

God has given us the opportunity in this life to make a choice... to choose Him or not. God does not and will not force us to choose Him. This has to be a decision that only we can make for ourselves of our own Free Will.


Matthew 12:30 30 He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.

Are you with the Lord? If not, then you are against him. Jesus said so Himself.


The choice is yours and depending on your choice, it will determine where you will spend the rest of your Eternal Existence after your soul which is the real you, not your body, departs and enters into the Eternal Realm. 


You have a choice of 1 of 2 places... God will allow you to make a choice. But, You only have 2 Choices.


So, Choose LIFE!

Invite Jesus into Your Life, Today!


There is no magic formula or prescribed pattern that has to be followed to receive salvation. Remember the criminal who hung on the cross next to Jesus? He was saved and forgiven of his sins, right there on the cross next to Jesus.


How did he do it?

1. He admitted he was a sinner and confessed of his sins.

Luke 23:40 But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, "Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation?

Luke 23:41 And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong."


2. He went and turned to Jesus and confessed (believed) that He (Jesus) as the Lord.

Luke 23:42 Then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom."


3. Then we find in a matter of seconds the criminal is forgiven of his sins (all wrongdoings) and has been given Eternal Life with Jesus in Heaven.

Luke 23:43 And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise." 


For God So Loved the World

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."


The only solution for sin, the only answer to sin, is the Cross of Christ. 


You may use the prayer below to ask Jesus to come into your Life and to Forgive you of your sins ...


Pray this Simple Prayer below, from Your Heart:

Just saying the prayer won't save you. You MUST believe in your heart that the words you say from this prayer are true and believing it to be so through Faith in Jesus Christ. God knows what is in our hearts.


-----------------------------------

Lord Jesus, I confess to You that I am a sinner, and I'm in need of a Savior, because I cannot save myself by my own good deeds, but you offered me the free gift of Eternal Life in exchange for my sin.


Lord Jesus, please forgive me of my disobedience, lies, idolatry, hatred, jealousy, sexual and material lusts, thefts and any and all other sins that I committed against You and God the Father.


Right now I place my faith in Jesus Christ as God's Son who lived a sinless life, died in my place as my substitute, and rose from the grave to give me Eternal Life.


Thank you for forgiving me and washing away all of my sins by the blood that You have personally shed for me on the cross. I am now ready to accept You as my personal Lord and Savior, so please help me through the power of your Holy Spirit to learn to live my life that is pleasing to you. Thank you for accepting me and giving me Eternal Life. 


In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.
